The 2014-15 Independent Promoter Program
Each year, Warren Miller Entertainment (WME) produces a feature-length ski and snowboarding film. Even though we tour the film throughout the country, we rely on the support of Independent Promoters like you to reach communities beyond the scope of our National Tour. We hope you choose to become a part of the Warren Miller film tour and promote our 65th annual feature film...or one of our classic films (see attached list) Feature Films Available
As we start to work up changes for the next season we encourage you to start to look at venue rentals at this time of the year. Theaters are booking out their fall dates already so try and get some holds on dates at your favorite venue. We are aiming for another mid-October release date. Remember you will want at least a few weeks to advertise your show and sell tickets.
